Saudi Arabia is intensely interested in Mohamed Salah, the Egyptian international who is also ranking high in goals and assists this season, and although they failed to reinforce him this summer, it is expected that they will try to acquire him in the transfer market next summer.
A replacement for Egyptian King, who will be 32 next year, is a pressing issue even without the interest of Middle Eastern clubs, and Liverpool will likely have to make a decision next summer.
Various names are being discussed in the media, with left-handed wingers who play on the right wing, such as Jarrod Bowen and Pedro Neto, seen as candidates.
In such a situation, Napoli star Victor Osimhen has surfaced as a target, and it was reported that he has even reached a contract agreement with Liverpool.
However, Fabrizio Romano has denied the reports completely and stated that he has not even moved forward with talks with Napoli.
“Some media is reporting that Victor Osimhen already agreed contract terms with Liverpool,”
“Guys from what I’m told, Victor Osimhen hasn’t agreed anything with any club – not even with Napoli.”
“There’s no agreement on the contract extension. Napoli made a really important proposal to Osimhen, in terms of contract, very important salary, the biggest in Napoli history is on the table for Osimhen. But he has not decided and he has not agreed anything with any club. “
“So Osimhen will take his time. Reports of an agreement with Liverpool are not true. For sure, Liverpool and many other clubs are keeping an eye on the situation of many strikers. But at the moment for Osimhen, nothing is agreed and nothing is decided.”YouTube
The center forward position is clearly not a priority area in the current team, as there is fierce competition for the position with Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez, and Diogo Jota.
The top priority up front is still to find a scoring source to replace the ace. Liverpool’s sporting director is still undecided, but what kind of attacking lineup will they build for the next season?
